broken windows theory

“Consider a building with a few broken windows. If the windows are not repaired, the tendency is for vandals to break a few more windows. Eventually, they may even break into the building, and if it's unoccupied, perhaps become squatters or light fires inside.
Or consider a sidewalk. Some litter accumulates. Soon, more litter accumulates. Eventually, people even start leaving bags of trash from take-out restaurants there or breaking into cars.”

      LOL, got to agree, one broken window in a building is almost like permission to brake the rest.

      Your quote is right. Can't argue with you on that. And that is sad. Human nature...

      Both stunning shots. Amazing details and fabulous light.

      Interesting line of thought !
      Why is it so ??
      I think, it`s a kind of "group pressure" in big cities!
      Here in a village won`t this happen! Our kids play in ruins "Pirates" or other kinds of heroes.

      The destroying part of the society has no other perspectives - too bad!!
